Rap RadarWhen Kelis was preparing to give birth to her son, Knight, earlier this week, father Nas was not present. The couple is currently undergoing a divorce. Meanwhile Nas had a performance in New York where he told his audience he was trashed from champagne. Well, perhaps the celebrating went too far, because when Nas finally made it to the hospital around 1:00 a.m., he was turned away for being too drunk.
Kelis gave birth to Knight Jones last night after being in labor since early Monday morning. Her mother and sister were in the room. Nas allegedly was the one to publicly break the news, and Kelis was not happy about it. Finally, she took to her Twitter to make the announcement: "I was in labor for 3 of the longest most painful days of my life. I don't understand when women say they don't remember giving birth," she wrote. "I will remember for the rest of my life. He's kinda perfect btw."
Nas and Kelis have been fighting over child support and baby expenses, but with behavior like his,

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty ImagesIf you're familiar with Bravo reality star Patti Stanger, you know there has been one major flaw in her "Millionaire Matchmaker" business: she couldn't get her own boyfriend to propose to her. Although her services are all about helping wealthy people who have difficulties in the dating scene find a mate and seal the deal, Stanger herself was thus far incapable of obtaining the fairy tale ending. But that may be changing now--Stanger and her boyfriend of nearly six years are now engaged.Read More »from Millionaire Matchmaker engaged: Do her rules really work?
Stanger, 48, and 51-year-old real estate executive Andy Friedman are planning a 2010 wedding. Friedman proposed to her in Maui, Hawaii on her birthday, with a black swan delivering a 4-carat diamond ring. "I have a rule," says the matchmaker. "If you go out a year and he doesn't propose, it goes up a carat a year." As obnoxious as that sounds, if she were really adhering to that rule, her ring may be a few carats short! When it's time to say "I do," the couple have different opinions of how it should
Remember this episode of "Sex and the City" where Jack Berger breaks up with Carrie Bradshaw on a Post-It? As infuriating and impersonal as that was, the TV show aired back in 2003 and times, as well as breakup methods, have changed. Gone are the days when someone picked up the phone to say, "I'm sorry, this just isn't working," or God forbid, met up in person to end a relationship. New technology has turned us all into cowards, relying on an email or a quick text to do our dirty work and break the news to partners we no longer want to trouble ourselves with. What could be worse than a breakup text? Try a Twitter split.Read More »from Informal breakups: E-mail, text and Twitter
Singer Demi Lovato, 16, decided to tell Trace Cyrus (Miley's 20-year-old brother) that they were through publicly via her Twitter account on July 19. "I think you and me have come to the end of our time," said Lovato. "Another storybook ending," Trace typed back for all to see.
We realize these two are quite young and perhaps they only dated for a brief time, but is
There is no avoiding the '80s revival these days whether it's through fashion (leggings, shoulder pads, acid wash), electro synth pop (Lady Gaga and LMFAO), and dance movies (remakes of "Footloose" and "Fame"). We've already seen adorable '80s icon Strawberry Shortcake get a makeover and the promise of a revamped Skipper and P.J. Sparkles on the way.Read More »from The '80s cartoon revival and why we love it
This summer there is no shortage of '80s cartoon nostalgia with awesomely packaged reissues of the original "G.I. Joe" and "Transformers" animated series on DVD along with new films for both. The "Transformers" sequel has already broken records for this year's biggest blockbuster, and the August 7 release of "G.I. Joe" is predicted to have similar success by riding off this '80s revival moment.
My boyfriend and I are both children of the '80s and have a real affinity for the programs we grew up watching. For him, that means scouring eBay for long lost G.I. Joe action figures and trying to get me to watch Season 1 on DVD. (I have to
TMZYesterday Chris Brown finally made a public apology for beating Rihanna via a video clip on celebrity gossip site TMZ. The singer claims his attorney had advised him to keep quiet about the February incident, but he had been wanting to express his regret for some time.Read More »from Chris Brown apology: Too little too late?
Chris, you are 20 years old. You are your own man, and if you wanted to speak up during this time, you could have. It has been five long months since you caused great physical harm to your ex girlfriend. We saw the photos and were genuinely disturbed by them. Both you and Rihanna have many young fans, and whether you like it or not, you are a role model. Setting this type of example and going five months without accepting responsibility and apologizing is immature, insensitive, and careless. When the public sees you racing jet skis with friends days after the incident, attending basketball games with a Rihanna lookalike, and going to parties wearing a $300,000 diamond necklace that says "Oops!", you are not sending a
London Evening Standard/Larry Busacca and Harold Cunningham and for GettyLast month we commented on Chris Brown being spotted with a Rihanna lookalike. Clearly he has a type. You know who else does? Leonardo DiCaprio.Read More »from Do you have a type?
The A-list actor could probably date anyone in the world, but he opts for models and only models. The #1 earning international supermodel Gisele Bundchen? Leo had her first. This year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl? Leo just ended their three-year relationship. But DiCaprio is never single for long--this weekend he was spotted having a romantic dinner in South Kensington, England with model Emma Miller.
Miller wasn't really on our radar till now (she dated C-lister Jesse Metcalfe, but that's all we know), but we have no doubt that one date with DiCaprio will catapult her career. The couple followed up dinner w with drinks at the bar, Collection. "The pair arrived separately and Leonardo was very keen not to be photographed," says an insider. "They left 10 minutes apart, and Leo then made his way to Maddox nightclub in
A UK study has determined the monetary value of different phrases by polling 1,000 British citizens about events crucial to their happiness and comparing that to the joy bestowed upon recent lottery winners. Perhaps it's not the most scientific of studies, but we were intrigued by the results.

Jason Merritt/Getty ImagesSomebody out there really likes Angelina Jolie's taste. Last week, three boxes of expensive designer clothing were stolen from Angie's Los Angeles stylist, Jennifer Rade. Rade was gathering gowns for Jolie, who was scheduled to have a fitting the next day. "Every designer who was sending pieces was trying to send their best stuff," says an insider. "Angelina was just starting the fitting process for pieces to wear when she begins promoting 'Salt.' "Read More »from Angelinaâ€™s dresses stolen: Whose wardrobe do you want?
When the designers find out their coveted, perhaps even one-of-a-kind items have gone missing, they are going to be furious! They may not even lend to Jolie's stylist again, and will have to be reimbursed for the missing goods.
But, really, the important question is: if you could get your hands on the red carpet dresses of any celebrity, who would it be? [NY Post]
